at the pentagon and other government agencies. let's bring in "usa today" washington bureau chief susan page and "the washington post" congressional reporter ed o'keefe. good morning to both of you and happy new year. >> good morning. >> same to you. >> the senate returns in about an hour. how close are they? what are you hearing? >> you know, i think it is conceivable that we'll have a new year's eve miracle and there will be a deal but i think the safe bet is against it. for this to happen in the next 14 hours you need to have no senator object to a majority vote, you know, any senator can start to filibuster and force the vote total up to 60 to continue working on any kind of deal they reach. and then you need john boehner to agree and house republicans to agree to bring it up in the same version or very similar version and i think the hurdles that have prevented us from getting a deal for two years are still there. so, i mean, we'll see what the next 14 hours brings but i wouldn't be too optimistic. >> if the senate does manage to hammer out a deal what are the chances the house will go
hit the pentagon and also domestic spend ising. they have according to the white house and senate republicans reached a deal but vice president biden is up on the senate side right now behind closed doors trying to convince some skeptical senate democrats to sign on to this before this piece of legislation hits the senate floor. we begin with our restart and to tell us exactly where we are at this hour, and this hour by the way is just two hours ahead of 2013. there you see the specifics of the deal. the framework. tax hikes on family income above $400,000 for an individual. $450,000 for a family. the top tax rate going to 39.6% from 35. 39.6% is the clinton range. the tax rate back in president clinton's term in office. prevents the expansion of the alternative minimum tax. the amt. essentially patches it permanently, the amt. that had long been a an annual chore for congress. extends long-term unemployment benefits and deals with a number of other specifics including tax credits and sets the estate tax individually at $5 million and an additional in tare hans beyond that at 40 o
in the pentagon budget for cuts? >> absolutely. serious conservatives need to make it very clear that taxpayers, republicans, conservatives are looking at the entire budget and saying where can we be more efficient and more effective? we have a rather large pentagon budget, larger than most of the other countries in the world that have armies, navys and air forces all added together -- >> combined. >> and we should have a strong military. we ought to keep the canadians on their side of the border, make sure nobody can throw a punch at us successfully. but to argue we can't reform some of the pension questions and contracting decisions that are made and the good news is the republican caucus, the conservative caucus among republicans, the republican study committee leader jim jordan made the comment that while he was concerned about how the sequester might affect defense, he was more concerned that those cuts might not take place. that was part of a strong america is not to have this massive spending that we've been having. >> i'll have you on for another discussion about your concerns for the c
. president obama stands up for his possible pentagon pick chuck hagel, but the president hasn't exactly committed to haag e's nomination. could it have something to do with the onslaught of republican criticism of the former senator? we'll tackle cabinet concerns next on "now."

about the pentagon. talk about federal workers. talk about obviously the unemploy unemployed whose benefits are going away. >> absolutely. the biggest -- the most dangerous thing, the fiscal cliff is the unemployment insurance. if we go over for a month we can sort of trick everything else. we can -- the irs can do some tricks to make it so you don't feel tax increases quickly. we can do tricks to make it so we don't lay off people at pentagon, we can furlough them. there's no trick with unemployment insurance. if we go over the cliff and don't do anything by unemployment insurance, 2 million people, hardest hit by the recession, will lose their unemployment insurance. that's number one. we're going to have the payroll tax cut expire, that's probably going to happen if we do reach a deal, that's one of the most important pieces of stimulative policy. the same said for refundable tax credits, helps poor folks. the same with the child tax credit. these have been really important for the working poor. you're going to see very, very big cuts to the government over time. we could paper
smith new hampshire. the pentagon, for reasons that i do not start to understand, still say they do not want new york city to hold a parade. new york city is where we've always done this. new york did throw one ticker tape parade for the new york giants and at their parade the football parade, we met the willis family. they brought a picture of her son and a huge giants fan. sergeant willis sent a message before the big game. >> i'm from new york. i want to say hi to my family and go big blue. >> his mom said she promised she would go to the parade if the giants won and she would bring his picture. the giants won and new york held the parade and glenda kept her promise. she said it would be compassionate to have a parade for her son and daughter in new york. tonight, there's still no parade in the works for new york city to welcome home the troops and mark the end of the iraq war. i can tell you that sergeant willis is home from iraq and afghanistan and he and his family are here with us watching the show in this very room. welcome home. look, you're on tv. it's really cool to have
pentagon budget issues coming up. so there's some talk about him wanting to hang on and try to manage the budget issues that are going to hit the pentagon over the next few months. host: we're taking your calls with david jackson, the white house reporter for u.s.a. today. first up is doug from oklahoma on the democratic line. good morning. caller: good morning. i had a question about geithner. hadn't he said something earlier about wanting to leave? guest: that's correct. host: around the inauguration was the quote. host: how would you feel about geithner leaving? do you want him to go as a democrat? caller: that's a good question. no. no. guest: the caller is right. geithner has said publicly he wants to leave around the nomination. but with the uncertainty, i don't think the administration would want him to leave as long as these issues are hanging. so we get a fiscal cliff this deal and i think he's going to be gone by the end of the month but i think it's kind of up t in the air. host: says a contender for his job would be jack lew. guest: that's the betting money. is his job if
cuts aimed at the pentagon and elsewhere. >> the revenues have to be part of the equation in terping off the sequester. >> trouble on the left as well. senators grumbling the president gave away too much on the tax threshold of $450,000 or more. the white house is pushing back by saying that the president held firm on 39.6% at the top rate despite reports he might negotiate down to 38%. bret? >> bret: ed. in that event, the president didn't have a lot of details. it seems to be framed much like as you mention ad campaign style event. perhaps a signal that this is what we may see in the new year if the battle over the debt ceiling heats up in the next few weeks. >> in doubt. he did two things. going out and hitting republicans hard at this event he was making clear if they don't have the final deal, he will go out on the road and pound them in the days ahead to put the blame on them. the second thing he was doing, not just on the fiscal cliff. on immigration and other irks in the days ahead -- issues in the day ahead. he is going to take it to the american people on issue after issue,
questions. the pentagon and all the other government agencies told their employees that they're not going to do anything with the sequester in january, because they're assuming congress will get its act together in january, february or so. so the idea that the markets are going to panic over this, you know, i think is a red herring. who knows? maybe they tank tomorrow. maybe they go through the roof. but i don't see that happening. though if it did that would drive things a little bit. >> do you have any sense they're feeling pressure from constituents at all? i would describe this as people are profoundly unhappy. >> that's a great point. congress' approval ratings are abysmal. but the pressure from the right for conservatives to cut a good deal, all this discussion about chained cpi is confusion. basically it means that republicans want to include entitlement reform as part of a deal. but why did they take that off the table? because when the debt ceiling comes next year, they can have a bigger fight about entitlement reform. so the big story today is that republicans are starting to re
in and the pentagon will be forced to cut $9 million in spending. >> if lawmakers can't avoid the fiscal cliff, they may be able to avoid a different cliff, the dairy cliff. house and senate members appear likely to extend farm legislation for a year, a deal that would keep milk prices skyrocketing in january. we were worried about $6 gallon of milk. it could keep a decades old subsidy from coming back to life. the usda would be forced to buy milk at prices well above what farmers were getting now if the subsidy was revived. it could double the price of moib to $6.12 a gallon. >> markets have been reacting to each move on capitol hill, but obviously, things at this point are looking like the dow would open down by about 7.5 points. the dow is off 67 points and the nasdaq is down 14.75 points. all the surprised given the late hour that -- >> even if something doesn't happen today, it happens in two or three days. >> right. so if you were looking for a market reaction because a lot of the market iraqis we've heard has said, if highways the case, near not getting it base odd what they're going to
-to-know in the pentagon and cia and certainly the white house. so i just felt a personal responsibility to keep it close, but that meant that i was basically, you know, having to consult with myself, to be honest. >> keeping this secret also meant going on about the business of presidency, touring that awful storm damage in alabama while knowing at athat very moment u.s. navy s.e.a.l.s were already the on the move halfway around the world. you had to go to tuscaloosa? >> yes. >> you had to go have fun at the correspondents dinner? >> yes. >> seth meyers makes a joke about osama bin laden. >> did you know that every day from 4:00 to 5:00 he hosts a show on c-span? >> how do you keep an even keel, even when we look back on the videotape of that night, there's no real depiction there's something afoot? >> you know, when i go down to tuscaloosa, i'm very much present there, because the tragedy and the devastation that had happened to the folks there, i think, consumed all my attention. so that wasn't difficult to focus on. the correspondents dinner was a different story. you know, that a little bit of actin
cuts kicking in. especially for defense. right now, the pentagon's looking at something in the neighborhood of a $55 billion cut in 2013, about 10% of its programs, and specifically, the "wall street journal," among others, reporting that the pentagon is making contingency plans to notify 800,000 civilian employees about possible furloughs. so this is front and center right now. and among those also sounding the alarm, senator lindsey graham after getting a call from defense secretary leon panetta over the weekend. >> last night at 7:30 during dinner, he said, lindsey, i'm told there's not going to be anything in this deal to avoid sequestration going into effect. >> there you have it in a nutshell. again, number one, we are getting hopefully a little more optimistic about either a short-term patchwork deal, setting the table for something bigger after the first of the year. but again, we've been talking primarily just on the tax side of the equation, the issue for the pentagon, the defense industry, and frankly, a whole lot of civilian employees, what about the sequeste
, but remember, the funding at the pentagon, without the wars, has doubled in the last ten years and it's a, you know, over 600 billion right now. so, 50 billion out of 600 billion, that's not even 10%. so, i really think we have is to keep perspective. these cuts aren't permanent, we can adjust them after the first of the year, i think we can make adjustments after the first of the year if we don't get a deal, still hopeful we get a deal if we don't, all of us know we can make adjustments. >> senator, thank you vet. i appreciate it. still hopeful, what senator mccaskill just said, martin, i can tell you, as i said, many of the colleagues coming out of the meeting, wrapped up right in there did not have that same assessment, see what happens, back to you. >> dana bash, thank you very much. >>> let's turn now to maine senator olympia snowe. she says it is time to talk about spending cuts and not limit the talk to just the tax hike question. senator snowe joins us now. let me start by asking, are you in favor, senator, of raising tax rates on anyone making more than $250,000 a year or are you more
for the pentagon. they didn't and that is why we are where we are. now, the scaled back deal is what you are saying the mini deal is what vice president biden is still trying to convince some skeptical liberal democrats in the senate to sign on to? >> absolutely right. they believed in president obama out on the campaign trail saying let's make these people of upper income above $250,000 pay more taxes. they were not happy with the negotiation because the republicans obviously don't want to raise taxes on anybody but if they are going to give the president who won reelection more revenue as part of a balance deal, if you will, they were willing to go up to $450,000 and so the vice president is eceptionly say -- essentially saying to liberal democrats who want to raise taxes on more people this is a good deal and keeps us from going off the fiscal cliff. you need to get onboard with this and h help me pass this across the finish line. there may be a little bit of stroking of some democratic egos in the caucus meeting to try to get this done. >> mike emanuel, thank you. as we look live at the ohio cl
the massive cuts aimed at the pentagon and elsewhere. >> revenues have to be part of the equation in turning off the sequester. >> there is some real anger brewing tonight on the left about proposed deal. even rich trumka the evidence the afl-cio head of organized labor it's not a good fiscal cliff deal if it gives more tax cuts to the 2% and sets the stage for more hostage taking. he is referring to the debt ceiling debate that's coming early next year. goes on to tweet republican's fiscal cliff double think fiscal crisis demands cuts in service, no investment in jobs but allows more tax cuts for richest americans. if and when this comes up for votes in the house and senate, it's unclear how many democrats especially on the left will support this, or buck the president, basically. bret? >> bret: ed henry live in the white house. thank you. stocks started the week up. possibly encouraged early in the day about talk of this possible deal. the dow finished ahead 166. the s&p 500 was up 24. the nasdaq gained 59 another deal not fiscal cliff related. the senate home security committee blasted th
measure delays mandatory pentagon and domestic spenng cuts by two months. as the house convened at midday, a number of republican congressmen complained the bill is still too heavy on tax hikes and too light on spending cuts. ohio's steve la tourette dismissed it as a "package put together by a bunch of sleep- deprived octogenarians on new year's eve." and the alabama representative said the house needs more time. >> the house must postpone this vote until congress and the ameran people have time to study and evaluate this extraordinarily complex legislation and its impact on taxes, revenue, the economy, our debt and a myriad of other issues. >> woodruff: but tennessee democrat steve cohen warned about the consequences of not taking the senate deal. >> my district can't afford to wait a few days and have the stock market go down 300 points tomorrow if we don't get together and do something. >> woodruff: later house democratic leaders emerged from a nearly three-hour meeting with vice president biden, who helped broker the senate deal. minority leader nancy pelosi called for action. >> we

to libya were killed. the report also finds fault with the pentagon and the white house. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge live with that from washington. is this report different from the one that the state department investigation group put out, catherine? >> reporter: it is, jon. thank you and good morning. this congressional investigation also faults the pentagon for having no effective evacuation plan and faults the white house including president obama for his inconsistent statements about whether benghazi was a terrorist attack given the intelligence suggested within hours that an al-qaida affiliate was involved on september 11th. it sites mr. obama a's interview with 60 minutes on september 12th as evidence of inconsistent statements. he states it's too early to know exactly how this came about, what group was involved. obviously it was an attack on americans and we will be working with the libyan government to make sure we bring these folks to justice one way or the other. the president said in an interview over the weekend that there were quote, huge problems and
. the report also faults the pentagon and the white house. it criticizes the obama administration for being inconsistent in explanations regarding what led to the attack, initially blame ago video, not terrorism. >>> san diego police officer is seriously injured when a suspected drunk driver slams right into his cop car. police say the suspect was speeding when he ran a red light, t boning the cruiser. took 45 minutes for crews to pry the officer out of his car. he is expected to be okay. the suspect was not seriously hurt, but he was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. >>> kanye west kind of letting the cat out of the bag a little. listen. >> make some noise. >> juliet: i have no idea what he said. >> clayton: i don't either. >> juliet: then there was static. but apparently he said that his girlfriend, kim kardashian, is pregnantgo. he made the big announcement during a concert in atlantic city last night. sources say she had no idea he was going to spill the beans! oops, i hope the family knows. up 'til now, the family had denied pregnancy rumors. so congratulations to them. and we're
automatic, across-the-board spending cuts to the pentagon and domestic spending. we are getting your take on that this morning with our coverage on a "washington journal." here is what the majority leader harry reid had to say earlier this morning before the vote. >> working through the night and throughout the day, we have reached a deal with senator mcconnell to avert tax increases on middle class americans. i have said all along to our most important priority is to protect middle-class families. this legislation does that. middle-class families will wake up to date to the assurance that their taxes will not go up -- today to the assurance that the taxes will not go up $2,200 each. they will have the certainty to pay for groceries and car payments on next year. legislation protects 2 million americans lost their jobs during the great recession, losing their unemployment insurance. i'm disappointed that we were not able to make a grand bargain as we have for so long, but we tried. host: here is the headline in "the washington times." -- late into new year's eve, the criticism from the le
as part of this, but we do have to have cuts. the pentagon's got to be part of that, and health care, this is where it's tough for the democrats. health care has to be part of this. that's not medicare benefit cuts. there's a lot of things we can do to deal with the high cost of health care in this country that goes up two or three times the rate of inflation, so having prescription drug price negotiations, that would save $160 billion, moving away from fee for service to more of a performance based system, things that we can make progress on that allow the american people to have access to health care but have it be affordable and sustainable but that's tough. >> all of the low hanging fruit is gone. if it were easy to do congress would have done it by now. >> that's right. >> so -- go ahead. >> it's true. the things that lay ahead that are really a challenge, largely is health care because that cost in the whole economy not just medicare is going up faster than we can afford. that's really the bottom line so how do we reform our health care system and bring the cost in line so it's

-the-board spending cuts set to start striking the pentagon and domestic agencies this week. so what do you think about the sequester? does it just kind of -- i don't want to use this phrase, but kick the can down the road? want after two months? >> we probably do this again. i'm not really sure why it's there. i'm not -- i don't understand who it's there to keep happy, who asked for the sequester delay. if it was the democrats, that's one thing, if it was the republicans, that's another. the house had a good plan to replace those sequester cuts with other, better cuts. so the sequester's going to be a big problem over here for those of us who are interested in reducing spending. heather: so i want to talk about whether this will, in fact, come up in the house today when they convene, i think it is noon unless that's changed. the house has informally operated under the hastert rule. basically, house gopers similarly will -- simply will not bring up a bill that does not have the majority party in the favor. even if it could pass with a colegislation of some of the members -- coalition of some of t
that? and i want to say a word about sequestration. sequestration is about to kick in. the pentagon and our defense department is like a giant oil tanker. you got to turn it around in a very difficult and slow manner, because they have to make plans and they have to have contingencies -- procurement of weapons, have to do all the things that are necessary to make sure our men and women who are serving in the military are the best trained, best equipped and most professional in the world, which they are. but we're looking at sequestration here when the department of defense says it will decimate our adilt -- ability to defend this nation. shouldn't the president of the united states be concerned about that? but what is his own secretary of defense is saying and what his own chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, his selection, is saying. instead, we kind of joke around and tell people they're going to be here fear new year's eve. that's not the way to lead this nation. so i come to the floor and say to my colleagues, we need to get this done. we all know that we need to get this done
